PlayStation 4: So Now You Can Finally Change

PlayStation 4: So Now You Can Finally Change Your Name In PSN. Since April 11, it’s possible to change your PSN ID. We will show you with a guide on how the name change works.

What’s new now? If you want, you can now change your display name for the PlayStation Network. This is possible via the PS4 itself or in the web browser.

Such a function players longed for a long time. Many now simply like to have a different online name because they can use it on other platforms, can no longer identify with the old name or simply want a change.

A beta phase has already been running in recent months , and now the program is activated for everyone.

How expensive is the change? If you change the online ID for the first time, it’s free. Each further change costs € 9.99. PS Plus members pay € 4.99 for each additional one after the first change.

If you change back to an old ID, it’s free. This is always yours. After a change, no one else can use your old name.

You can change your IDs as often as you like.

Advantages of PS-Plus: If you decide for a PS-Plus membership, these games are also available for free in April:

How to find your friends again: You have the option to display your old ID next to the new one up to 30 days after the change. This makes it easier for friends to remember the change.
